A blind date ended up being a match made in heaven for Ingrid and Tim. Soon followed by detailed filled yellow and teal wedding at Rancho Los Cerritos and the Virginia Country Club in Long Beach. Since Ingrid is an art teacher, the wedding was overflowing with clever details.
Ingrid hosted a craft day with her closest women family and friends prior to the wedding. They crafted for 8 hours together making handkerchief programs, toss cones, parasols, tissue poms, terrariums, escort cards and more. If it was not for the help of those crafty ladies, she would not have been able to pull off all the lovely details.

A special thanks to Sweet Monday Photography for sharing this delightful Long Beach Wedding with us.
From Ingrid on her wedding planning process:
We designed our wedding to reflect the unique mix of elements that come together in Long Beach. We wanted to incorporate the historic feel of the Rancho with vintage decorations, and although Long Beach is a large community it feels very small town in many ways. We wanted the wedding to have the personal touches that reflect who we are and our personalities. Below are a few Ingrid's favorite memories of the wedding!
My brother-in-law played the guitar and sang a song during the ceremony that had special meaning to us Tim's father passed away during high school and to include his father in our day was important. Tim's sister carried his father's bible and read from it during the ceremony The yellow dresser belonged to my father's deceased grandparents; Tim and I repainted it and added new knobs. Tim and I enjoyed the time making crafts together and plan to use the dresser for our future children's room Tim and I also had a blast searching antique stores for vintage postcards of locations in Long Beach, and places we have traveled together in California
